Al Qaeda in U.S.

By Sean Osborne, Associate Director, Military Affairs

22 October 2007: [N]orthern New Jersey is not the only locale of Islamic terrorist networking. Every major city in the country has terrorist cells. Rural areas have them in abundance as well. Find a mosque or an Islamic charity in the US - and you’ll also find a terrorist cell or support structure embedded within it. Most of the primary Al Qaeda and Islamic terrorist websites are hosted by U.S. ISPs.

It seems obvious to me that our government is scared silly by the active Islamic insurgency within America. So scared that, at least in their public comments, they’re in abject denial of the insurgency. In fact, Joint Staff counterterrorism analyst Stephen Coughlin has warned anyone who will listen in the Federal Government that the U.S. Justice Department’s outreach to suspect Muslim groups could ‘legitimize threat organizations by providing them domestic sanctuary.’
